View Full Version : What the hell fitting is this?

I need to order a replacement as this hose leaks terribly. I would prefer to just get a hose barb and clamp but i cant figure out what fitting this is to order it?

gut off the brass shield with side cutters and there is a barbed end
i would reuse with a good hose clamp
Looks like the end on my inert gas hose for the mig. I usually just take the bad one in and ask for the replacement. In a pinch I've taken a zip wheel to the crimped furel, removed the existing end and just used a clamp on that after I cut off the bad part of the hose. The "barb" is smaller than those for the hose clamps but it will work.

I agree, you can cut off the brass hose ferrule and use another type of clamp or ferrule in its place. Western Enterprises is the supplier of all welding related fittings. The web site is not super user friendly, but you can also get a print catalog mailed to you.
